Overall, one of the most transformative experiences of my life. It’s been over a month since PR completed and I feel like I’m still growing every day. What was palpable throughout the entire experience is how much PR changes from year to year and how much effort the lead instructors put in order to expand and distill the curriculum in order to deliver more depth to the program. I really do feel that PR has evolved from just learning game to becoming an attractive, confident man living a fulfilling life.
Overall, one of the most transformative experiences of my life. It’s been over a month since PR completed and I feel like I’m still growing every day.
Fitness program: While I think that Gethin stuff may be a bit outdated, I stuck to everything that the manual directed in terms of diet and exercise and I got in the best shape of my life at the age of 39. I felt like there was always live support if I needed it, though I did fairly well with only occasional guidance on altering my dietary macros.
House: 20 guys living together is FUN. However, is very hard to keep clean even though Justin tried to keep a tight ship. Cleaning (while clearly a bonding part of the PR experience) cut into other activities and hiring a made service to tidy up just the kitchen and the bathrooms every night after we went out would have helped. The house had a great environment and was a huge part of vegas.
I was very happy that we had a gym membership set up in Vegas as that allowed to keep the exercise regimen going.
Seminars: A most amazing line up, especially since I had a pretty good idea as to how the program has been expanded and enriched from last year.
I feel like we got so much more out the inner game part compared with prior classes. Some of the concepts that we have explored and I have delved into, I have never touched on before. However, they are so crucial in developing masculinity and inner strength and I work on them every day now. Not sure how or when I would come across these things without PR. The sacred ceremony was one of the deepest experiences of my life and something I would do again to reinforce my discoveries.
Business seminars from fellow rockstars was a nice addition. We had some amazingly successful guys on PR and it was very cool for them to open up about how they made their $.
1st 10-day block: I know we’re supposed to be drinking form the fire hose, but this was too fast for me to assimilate and integrate. I definitely feel like I fell behind early because I did not put everything together. I could have used more targeted feedback and maybe more 1:1 time as I was really struggling. Yes, there is an emphasis on autocorrection and yes I made huge strides as the program proceeded, but my trajectory was painfully slow and I was struggling quite a bit in the beginning. I feel like I was bumping against the wall for the first 7-10 days until Sterling pointed out a couple of fundamental issues and recommended that I take a step back. In fact, I felt that some of the instructors did not really emphasize with my frustration (though deep inside I know that many guys went through the same process) early on and could have really given me extra feedback. My problem wasn’t in sustaining energy and approaching. It was very poor technique. And while it did stem from lack of inner game, I feel like correcting some external behaviors ahead of the expected inner game->outer game sequence could have helped me a lot. The idea is that PR is the launchpad for perpetual lifelong growth and as long as that growth continues, the trajectory at PR is not that important because there is so much more runway ahead. I certainly agree with this paradigm, but it still would have been nice to make some extra progress early on and get some more ass in Vegas.
We had healthy meal prep in Vegas and that was clutch. I really liked the taste and the quality of food. Next time though, probably should be 1/3 less as a lot of food went to waste.
I was the treasurer and used excel to track expenses in Vegas. We started using Splitwise on the road trip and it made things a lot easier. There was also a miscommunication initially as I assumed that I would be provided with certain tools to do the treasurer job. Once I realized that we had to figure it out on our own, it wasn’t a big deal to set things up, but knowing it before PR started would have been a little more convenient.
Time balance between going out, bonding at the house and sky-diving guns and house BBQs was near perfect.
No alcohol rule definitely enriched the experience, fortified my approach habit and removed a big crutch from my game. I will admit that my game got better with alcohol on the road-trip and in Stockholm, but alcohol became a booster to a well formed inner/outer game combo.
2 ½ week road trip was a perfect duration. We had an amazing time in Mykonos and Budapest and made everything happen on our own.
I expected there to be more daygame emphasis. In fact, aside from a single seminar, there was none, which was a bit underwhelming, as daygame is a major part of game and in a way more technically challenging.
The trip to the lake-house outside of Stockholm was a great time. I wish we had ventured out to the Swedish country side a bit more, as we did have 3 weeks there.
What was palpable throughout the entire experience is how much PR changes from year to year and how much effort the lead instructors put in order to expand and distill the curriculum in order to deliver more depth to the program.
